Quote of the Day, 7/12/06

Here's an obscure quote:

We are meant to be here.

We step from one piece of holy ground to the next under stars that ask... imagine for one second that you could drop in on a past life. What would you like to find yourself doing there? What would charm you, make you proud?

Ask yourself that, and the question of what to do in this life becomes so simple it's terrifying -- just to do that thing that would charm you, that would make you say, yes it's the real me.

Do that and you're alive.

I transcribed this quote from the January, 1998 "Luminary" episode of Millenium (did anyone other than me watch that show?) -- the quote was a diary entry from a young man who had gone missing.

If I could drop in on one past life, I would drop in on Mozart in 1791 with enough medical knowledge to prevent him from dying at such a young age. Imagine the masterpieces we've been deprived of by his premature death! Though I'm not sure how this helps me in the course of my present existence.
